Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

Looping is what this next artist is about. She, and I want to stress she because a lot of people in her comments called her and he, sets up many loops and proceeds to sing to them. The band is called tUne-yArDs.

Do you know what make me mad as hell? When people get bullied online and/or real life. Merrill Garbus from tUne-yArDs had labels fighting over her because of her unique sound. What happened? She gets made fun of because of the way she looks in YouTube comments. I simply love her soulful voice and how she changes her outfit to match what she's singing about.

She Possesses an expansive sound that marries a coarse folk with the bold pop sensibility of an R&B, African influences, and a lot of DIY aesthetic.

This song is called Powa. It contains two loops going on to start the song out.

This is a tiny desk concert put on by by the support of: NPR.

 This song is called Bizness.

I don't like bullies either.... They come in all ages.

I remember working at a Big Wheel store and a few of the women would try to gang up on the weaker ones. One day.... they thought they would gang up on me. Big mistake. I am not weak and put them in their place. Never again did I have trouble with them.

Kids have it the worst, they are so trying to please everyone around them. Great Choice for your Sing A Song Saturday.

I don't think I've ever heard of looping before, but I do have to say that I kind of like her sound, too.

The drums in the second one have a great beat, the kids in the last one look like they had a great time with it.

Wow! You sure found some songs with rhythm. The third video is really unique.
